While we worked on our "This I Believe" projects, I ended up learning that it totally okay to completely restart a piece of writing if I do not like the original. I ended up restarting my paper a couple different times, and even now by the end of the week, I am considering restarting it yet again.
It is totally fine to restart this because if I do not think it is a perfect writing for this project, I can redo it to make it perfect. Restarting papers can be beneficial because it can make papers better.
The first paper I wrote was about how I believe that there is more to everybody than what meets the eye. I believed that I knew exactly how to go about writing my paper, but as I started writing it, it somehow led me to think about what other things I believe in. When that happened, there was one belief that I thought of that I realized it would be even easier to do my project about that.
So I just restarted my paper and began to write about how I beleive that everything happens for a reason. That paper went a lot smoother and faster than the other one. However, after I finished that paper, I read through it and decided I did not like it. So I ended up thinking about going back to my old topic.
After a lot of going back and forth, I decided to go with the belief that everything happens for a reason, and I just fixed all my mistakes from the old paper. If I had just went with a paper that I did not like, I would not be satisfied with my project, and I would not be able to make it the best it could be. So it was perfectly fine that I restarted it a few times.
